From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Giuliano Montaldo is an Italian movie director, born February 22, 1930 in Genoa.

While he was still a young student, Montaldo was recruited by the director Carlo Lizzani for the role of leading actor in the film Achtung! Banditi! (1950). Following this experience he began an apprenticeship as an assistant director of Lizzani and Gillo Pontecorvo.

In 1960 he made his debut as a director with Tiro al piccione, a film about the partisan resistance, which entered for a competition in Venice Film Festival in 1961. In 1965 he wrote and directed Una bella grinta, a cynical representation of the economic boom of Italy, winning the Special Prize of the Jury at Berlin Film Festival. His cinema career continued with Gott mit uns (1969), and he received an international recognition for Sacco and Vanzetti (1971), a film about the abuses of the military, judicial and religious power, winning Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival.

In 1982 he produced the colossal television series Marco Polo which won the Emmy Award for the best television series.
